Amid a growing controversy over Mitt Romney's refusal to release more than two years of tax returns, Democrats in Congress on Wednesday began proposing legislation that would require more financial disclosures from presidential candidates. Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) is unveiling a bill that would require all presidential candidates to release at least 10 years of tax returns, while Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) are rolling out legislation that would require candidates for federal office to disclose their overseas investments, including Swiss bank accounts. "Clearly, I think the American people are entitled to more" than what Romney's offering, Durbin said.
